There's such blatant evidence of copying that it's not even correct to say "inspired". Look at the Dock and the Launchpad of apps in the video, or look at the icons for the Address Book and Midori browser on their website. Don't let your anti-Apple sentiments cloud your vision.

^ that's because Mint 10 uses the elementary theme.
And I disagree about Gnome 3/distros and Mac. Sure, some elements are clearly inspired by Mac/Win, but what's wrong with that?

Funny you should say that btw, because for some reason these things in the Linux landscape have a tendency to "evolve on their own" only after Apple introduced it to the public.
(...) but some things just evolve on their own and it's pointless arguing about it. (...)

I wonder if they'll ever consider making a KDE-based DE.

It was rumored that Windows 7 was a rip off of KDE.
KDE is too glossy to be a Mac clone. If anything, they'll rip off Windows 7 since a lot of the wanna-be Aero work is already there. If you're going
to copy someone else's design, might as well make it easy on yourself!
I kid, I kid.

To me its just a new theme if its based on something else.
